Trendy spot with great drinks. A good spot to watch sunset. The prices of drinks weren't cheap.

This buzzing, always busy bar is literally built on Cartagena’s old fortified walls. While it can be loud and a bit impersonal, there’s really nothing like sipping a beer and gazing towards the Caribbean ocean. Live music most nights.

This is a must do. Everyone flocks to this breezy, open air lounge with bumping trance music around 5pm to savor a Mojito and watch the sun dip down and light up the sky with a blaze of orange and red colors. Perfect spot for people watching and a pre dinner cocktail.

A good outdoor restaurant facing a beautiful square with live music and an iconic historic monument, Convento de Santa Clara.

Overlooking the Caribbean and serving cocktails to a sexy international crowd, Cafe del Mar certainly is not off the beaten path, but it is a must-do for Cartagena nightlife.

Quite a nice place , walking distance from Centro historico, prices are high, you can also go there to just see the Sunset there is plenty of Space for other visitors. My Long Island ICE tea served it's purpose. Its more a place for the view, Food menue is minimal.

Overpriced and underwhelming place to see a great view of Cartagena's coast, that is if you want to sit upstairs. This place is definately filled with tourists. It is a great way to get ripped off. There are plenty of pleasurable other local cafes to visit.

Cafe Del Mar is probably the most famous restaurant in Cartagena, because it is situated right on top of the wall and overlooks the sea. It provides beautiful views of the sun setting on the Caribbean Sea. A perfect restaurant to take your significant other to and enjoy a nice romantic evening. I was traveling by myself, so there was no romance at my meal! However, the food was good and i enjoyed my table of 1 as the sun set. The restaurant usually opens up at 5:00 PM, but plan to arrive early during busy season. The prices are above average for the city, but the view Cafe Del Mar is worth it.

By far the best looking crowd I've seen so far in Cartagena. It's also the best place to see the Sun go down for the night. The drinks are premium priced...but you're paying for the views. A must hit spot while you are here. Where else are you going to drink with cannons against the ramparts surrounded by such beauty?:)

Nice bar with a large, open seating area on top of the wall to the historical part of the city. The drinks are decent but overpriced, but the view is incredible.

the menu is very short, a good place for the view to the bay but not a good place to eat..

This place is a MUST at sunset. Relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy fantastic sangrias and cocktails while enjoying the stunning seafront view. During the 4 days I spent in Cartagena I went every day for sunset drinks and loved it.

Cafe del Mar is a fun outdoor bar located high up at the corner of the Old City so you have a view of the ocean. It's the best place to watch the sunset in Carta. Good dance music. Great place to make new friends.

Cafe Del Mar is a beautiful, seaside, outdoor bar and restaurant with an amazing view. Remember it is on top of stone walls built to protect the city from invaders and pirates!

It has all the features of a generic tourist destination: nice sunset view from a historic landmark, over-priced watered-down cocktails (8 USD for a Mojito), crowds of tourists thirsting to experience local culture..

If that sounds like a place you want to visit, keep in mind that it can get quite windy and cold at night.

Cafe del Mar is where the glitzy people go in Cartagena. Be sure to check out the lounge when the sun sets. That's when the place becomes alive with ambient music, darkly lit lighting, and is filled with locals and foreigners.
